30 for 30: Pockets


Hello bloggy friends! I hope Monday treated everyone well and that Tuesday proves to be even better. Thanks for all the great feedback on better poses for my blog. I really do love the comments everyone leaves and even though I don't always have time to write back, I do read all of them!

So let's talk about pockets: basically, if a skirt or a dress has pockets, I will probably buy it. I don't know what it is, but I think it's because when I am in a social setting I sometimes feel weird if I don't have anything to do with my hands- the solution? Pockets.

Is there a detail or characteristic that you love and look for when you go shopping?

Dress, BP
Skirt, Anthropologie
Shoes, NineWest

Oh here's a fun little tip! I follow the ModCloth blog and for a post they gave different style bloggers the same dress and had them all style it their own way. Besides being able to see a number of fun ways to wear the dress they chose, a few of the ladies put a skirt over the dress to create a new outfit. I would have never thought do do this before but it totally works as long as the dress is shorter than the skirt- see above.

  1. Ok really - I think we are long lost besties. First awkward turtle and now this - today I am wearing a skirt over a dress. Well actually it's a tunic...it's a tunic-dress. It's a tunic-dress with a skirt over top. You get my point.

  2. I'm pocket obsessed as well. If a skirt has pockets, it's a winner in my books. I love the ribbon belt on your skirt, very pretty.

  3. Pockets are a godsend! That is why I love anthro dresses so much, they are gorgeous, different to the high street and have pockets for me to hide my hands in when I feel awkward!

  4. You just gave me a great idea for an outfit post! Thanks so much for the inspiration! And I'm totally all about pockets. I feel like I have big, awkward hands so the easier to hide them the better.

  10. I totally agree with you about pockets- I often think that any worthwhile designer should be putting pockets in skirts. I have an active job and I love skirts, but without pockets I find it difficult to balance doing work and like, holding my ipod in my hand!

  20. I love wearing dresses as tops. I've been using that trick in my 30 for 30 posts too! Helps give a lot more options for the remix. Love your skirt btw :)
